"FOREST" is a device that projects the shadows of drawings and photographs cut out from some botanical picture books onto the wall. We cut out used books that someone compiled as a paper medium "Book" and read by other someone who bought it. We made them onto a new work.
It is an attempt to ask "What is an Image?" and "What is Nature?" by expressing how an image as a picture, a photograph, or a book connects another image to the mind of the reader. The cylinder of the projection device has the motif of a huge roller in a paper mill and a rotary press in a printing factory at the same time.
This work made for the exhibition "2022 Blossoming Fantasy - Taiwan-Japan International Art Exchange Exhibition".
